The Design Film Trilogy: available only through our Kickstarter campaign

Over a thousand people have backed our Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to help finish Urbanized. Thanks! We’ve got two weeks left, and we’re getting closer to our funding goal. But as with all Kickstarter projects, if we don’t meet that goal, we don’t get any of the funding. So if you haven’t already, please help us finish the film, you’ll get some sweet rewards!

Like the Design Film Trilogy limited-edition box set: definitive editions of Helvetica, Objectified, and Urbanized, plus a hardcover art book with notes, photos, and essays on the three films. Designed by Build, only 1,000 copies of this Trilogy box will be produced, and the only way to reserve a copy is through our Kickstarter campaign.

The other news is that we’ll be releasing exclusive video clips and soundtrack MP3s over the next few months as we’re finishing Urbanized. But these pre-release clips will only be available to our Kickstarter backers. So if you want to see and hear the film as it’s being finished, back the project!

UPDATE: Our Kickstarter campaign is now over, and we are not accepting pre-orders for the Design Film Trilogy. We’ll be offering a small number of the Trilogy boxes for sale at the end of 2011, so please get on our email list and we’ll keep you posted.

    My friend is a planner and I was looking into getting this box set for her, but I guess I will just have to purchase the films separately unless there will be more produced.

    Tracy, there won’t be any more of these produced, it was a limited edition. You might be able to find one on eBay? Cheers, Gary

    Hi Gary, we’re too architects writing you from Norway. Tell us is there a chance to get one copy of the LE box-set. We’ve searched the whole net without good news. Let us know about it, please. Thanks, and congrats!
